March CoPA Meeting with Gallery Director John Sobczak
March 10, 2020 @ 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM
WHAT ARE GALLERIES LOOKNG FOR? HOW CAN I FND A GALLERY TO SHOW MY WORK? WHAT DO I SHOW THEM?
Join your friends at CoPA for a fascinating meeting featuring speaker John Sobczak, gallery director at The Alice Wilds. John will talk about what galleries look for when talking to artists about possible representation, how artists can prepare to show their work to galleries and other topics of interest to photographers.
Although the Alice Wilds shows a wide variety of work, John has always been partial to photography.
“Anyone who has known me for the last 30-odd years knows of my deep and abiding interest in photography,” he said. “Over that time span, I’ve been involved in exhibitions that run the gamut from Eadweard Muybridge to Natalie Krick. If I actually take the time to construct a comprehensive list, I find I’m quite impressed by it,” said John Sobczak in an interview in Urban Milwaukee this January.
Join us at 5:30 if you want to grab a drink and mingle with fellow photographers. Feel free to bring prints or work on a tablet if you wish to get feedback, need a little help with a creative problem or would simply like to show what you’ve been working on. At 6:15 we will launch our new series: Member Spotlight where one or two members will show their work and answer five questions about their process, inspiration and experience. Updates and announcements will follow and the speaker will begin at 6:45. (If you would like to participate in the Member Spotlight please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Also new this month we will be raffling and/or selling books from Tom Ferderbar’s extensive photography and art book collection. Tom is donating the books so that all proceeds go to CoPA.
Bring your appetite for more than art. Transfer Pizza has the best pizza in town!
CoPA meetings are free to members, students and first time guests. $10 for all others.
